2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-1/2 tsp dill herb blend seasoning
2 tbsp lemon juice

Gently squeeze the excess water from the yogurt.
Place drained yogurt back into cup and rinse cheese cloth. Peel and remove seeds from the cucumber and finely dice.
If you have a mini food processor/chopper, cut cucumber in 1-1/2" pieces and pulse several times until diced.
Using the same cheese cloth, place diced cucumber in the center and gather edges, forming a ball.
Squeeze excess water from cucumber and set aside.
In a bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon, and dill. Add yogurt, miracle whip, cucumber and garlic.
Stir in Splenda and salt & pepper to taste.
Mix thoroughly and place in air-tight container.
Use 1 tablespoon of dressing on sandwiches or use as a dip for boiled shrimp. Yum!
